Melbourne, VIC: Taxi driver helps make the case for crossing removal

19 Oct

BxxQeGvIYAAF8FjVictoria Labor Party leader Daniel Andrews was handed an example of why level crossing makes perfect sense while campaigning at a level crossing in Fairfield, an inner-suburb of Melbourne. A taxi driver became stuck on the tracks as the barriers lowered for an approaching train, the driver of which saw the obstruction and brought his train to a stand short of the obstruction.

The message that opposition leader Andrews was trying to get across to vote ahead of next month’s state elections was that only Labor has a credible plan to eliminate the 50 most dangerous of the level crossing that bring congestion and blight the greater Melbourne area.
